Dolphin Connect

Sync and send from your Android phone to your desktop with Dolphin's Connect feature. Pick up where you left off and sync your bookmarks, tabs, web browsing history and passwords, or share files or web info between an Android device, a stationed computer, or other mobile devices. This feature requires user to download the desktop extensions for Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.

Comparison to other mobile browsers:

One of Dolphin's definitive differences in contrast to other browsers, is the Gesture feature for touch-screen. Gesture allows a quick jump to any website you may frequent with a symbol drawing or phrase. This feature can also be used for web navigation (such as drawing an arrow up or down to scroll on a webpage). Dolphin can also use voice control on the Android/Iphone to search, navigate, and share. Similar to voice control for Dolphin, the "Siri" voice control for the Iphone can perform web searches through Apple's Safari web browser.
